Repubblica: Milan considers “Rangnick’s arrival in Italy difficult” despite speculation

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan reportedly consider it ‘difficult’ for Ralf Rangnick to arrive in Italy this summer despite speculation regarding an agreement having already been reached.

With a break in the actual football due to the coronavirus outbreak, a lot of media attention is being focused on Casa Milan at the moment.

Chief Football Officer Zvonimir Boban was officially sacked over the weekend just before the Rossoneri’s 2-1 defeat to Genoa at San Siro behind closed doors, but that appears as though it could descend into a messy legal battle as the Croatian believes he was unfairly dismissed.

The row stems from an interview Boban gave to La Gazzetta dello Sport during which he seemingly revealed the presence of an agreement in place between Milan and Rangnick – carried out by Gazidis – and then he backed up that statement in a follow-up interview.

Despite everything pointing towards a German-led revolution at Milan, La Repubblica have a different take on the situation.

They claim (via MilanNews), that Milan considers “Rangnick’s arrival in Italy difficult” – which interestingly lines up with a Gazzetta report earlier on Tuesday which stated a source at Casa Milan believes there is ‘a 1% chance’ he arrives.

A circus on the field, a circus off the field and now in the media too.
